How Does Information Literacy Apply to the Wittenberg Curriculum?

Wittenberg University's research requirement states in part:

The student should be able to use the library to acquire information and to explore ideas and should understand the role of technology in the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information. Information literacy, integrated into all levels of the curriculum, is vital to fulfilling this requirement. Information accessible through the library is a key component of the information universe available to Wittenberg students.

The librarians are skilled in teaching students information literacy, both in-class and in individual consultations. Information literacy extends beyond the library, so librarians collaborate with classroom faculty to integrate teaching of these competencies into the curriculum.
